We believe that taking part in national and global initiatives, which are aligned with our purpose of caring about each other and the world around us, is a conscious and effective way to contribute to the construction of innovative standards in dispute prevention and resolution.

For this reason, MAMG Advogados has committed to important pledges: from international public commitments that aim to promote greater equality, diversity and inclusion in the legal profession to the ones that encourage sustainable practices and implement policies to avoid wasting valuable resources on disputes.

Learn more about the pledges we are signatories to:

CPR Dispute Prevention Pledge for Business Relationships is an international public commitment that recommends the adoption of dispute prevention techniques and practices to preserve business relationships and avoid litigation in a quick, efficient, and economical way.

The commitment has been made available for signature by the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR), a North American organization that is internationally recognized as a dispute prevention and resolution best practices benchmark and as a reference for administration of procedures and nomination of mediators and facilitators.

The Campaign for Greener Arbitrations: The Green Pledge provides international recommendations aimed to minimize the environmental impact of arbitration practices.

The Green Pledge advises that, when appropriate, witnesses and experts should testify by videoconference, avoiding travel for attendance at hearings. The pledge also suggests the use of videoconferencing as an alternative to traveling, and carbon offsets for long-distance travel related to arbitration.

The pledge’s recommendations also include reducing energy consumption and waste in law firms, encouraging the use of electronic copies of documents and prioritizing the hiring of suppliers and service providers who are committed to reduce their environmental footprints.

Equal Representation in Arbitration (ERA) Pledge is a global commitment to improve the representation of women in arbitration and to increase the number of women’s appointments to arbitral tribunals to achieve gender equality in arbitration.

The ERA Pledge sets forth concrete steps its signatories must take to assist the arbitral community in implementing equal opportunity. This pledge establishes that appointments in arbitration, as well as other opportunities in this legal field (conferences, committees, academic activities, lists of arbitrators, etc.), should be based on a level playing field between men and women.

This pledge is the result of a collaborative effort between state representatives, companies, arbitral institutions, arbitration professionals – both lawyers and arbitrators – and academics from all over the world.

CPR’s Diversity Commitment was created to promote greater diversity and inclusion in arbitration worldwide.

Developed by the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR), this pledge is committed to encouraging all forms of diversity, equality and inclusion in dispute resolution. It aims to promote increased participation of women, black people, and members of the LGBTQIAP+ community in mediation and arbitration.

One of the main tasks envisaged for CPR’s Diversity Commitment subscribers is to articulate with clients the debate on valuing diversity, especially regarding the inclusion of professionals who identify themselves as non-cisgender in the list of mediators or arbitrators.

In addition, the CPR pledge strengthens the commitment by providing a list of arbitration professionals composed of a minimum of 30% representatives of minority groups and proposes to make nominations of at least 30% of professionals who define themselves as gender neutral.
